Our Response to Coronavirus and COVID-19
last updated Tuesday, March 30, 2021
Since our founding 8 years ago, Medical Acupuncture has always placed an emphasis on health and safety for our patients and staff. The COVID-19 pandemic has required us to raise our demanding standards to an even higher level with new protocols for the current circumstances. We have put in place a multi-pronged approach designed to meet the health and safety challenges presented by COVID-19. Below is an overview of the key components of our commitment to safety and cleanliness.
Before you make an appointment
You should have confidence when you make appointments at our clinic that we are doing everything we can to have the facility ready for you. We are closely monitoring the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health agencies for the latest developments related to COVID-19 pandemic and following the guidance of government and public health officials. We are reinforcing these agencies' recommendations on the appropriate health and safety measures with our own safety guidelines.
On Your Visit
We ask everyone entering the building to wear a mask. Only patients with an appointment and their accompanying persons are allowed to come inside. COVID-19 screening questionnaire will be presented each visit, and your temperature will be recorded. Staff wear masks, and touchless hand sanitizer dispenser is located in the waiting area.
What we are doing to to keep our community safe
We recognize that the pandemic has required all of us to be more mindful as we go through our regular activities. Daily, we are working to ensure that we meet the latest guidance from the CDC and WHO on hygiene and cleaning. Our facility’s health and safety measures are designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses, including coronavirus. Those measures include everything from handwashing hygiene, cleaning product specifications, social distancing, proper personal protection equipment (PPE), treatment room cleanliness, and common area cleaning procedures.
